Dental crowding are a common cause for which patients require consultation and orthodontic treatment, especially when the crooked teeth are in the frontal area. The orthodontic treatment of dental crowding is performed not only for a charming smile and facial aesthetics, but also for a good dental and periodontal health. Many children and adults are misaligned teeth and there are many causes which can determine this: genetics and heredity, vicious habits ( thumb sucking, mouth breathing, tongue thrusting), trauma or tooth decay, discrepancy between tooth size and arch length and diet and eating habits. In this paper we would try to present some clinical aspects of some cases with dental crowding and the orthodontic treatment performed for its correction.
